i had gone to a school that was jewish affiliated. what i remember most are the pastrami, cornbeef, and egg salad sandwiches, pickles, and potato salads that filled our school sponsored lunches. i was so excited to try this place because it had a menu full of items that are nostalgic for me and it’s been a while since i have had good jewish deli food.
first off, the pickles, coleslaw, and potato salad were delicious. those are items often left half finished with a hearty sandwich, but today, ever single morsel was finished. and everything is served on rye! i love rye!
next was matzo ball soup. i have some foodie friends who really enjoy it at Max’s opera house, but i think this one is far better. the airiness of this matzo ball is not only delicate and really allowed the soup to soak through. on a raining/foggy san francisco day, this really hit the spot!
